Trinity– St. John Celebrates The 500th Anniversary Of The Reformation

Trinity-St. John Lutheran School along with other Lutheran Churches and Schools around the world recognize and celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation of the church.

500 years ago Martin Luther led the reformation of the Christian church as he encouraged Christians to remember the truths of the Bible and not be tempted by the evils in the world.

Romans 1:17 was a pivotal verse for Luther in His studies, “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”

Luther’s teachings remain with us today as we teach the truths of the Bible to our students and families and encourage them to reach out to others in faith. Ephesians 2:8-10 states, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

T-SJ students presented a special chapel Wednesday, October 25th and again Sunday morning October 29th during the Sunday School hour at Trinity Lutheran Church in Nashville.

Mrs. Diane Backs, Mrs. Janice Lange and Pastor James Miller led the students in preparing and presenting this special service. Many students, preschool-8th grade were involved in making this worship special. Logan Roesener (5th grader) played the trumpet, preschool 4 year olds- 4th graders played “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” with the bells, Connor Davis, Dallas Burr and Zach Brinkmann (6th graders) read Bible Verses, and a select group of 7th and 8th graders presented a skit, “Martin Luther Comes to T-SJ” by Joan W. Perry, describing the reformation and the work of Martin Luther.

Brandon Kujawa, Lynsey Kujawa, Hanna Niedbalski, Halle Rueter (8th graders), Sophia Doerr, Savanna Downey, Owen Dunn, and Leah Edwards (7th graders) were involved in the skit.

500 years after the Reformation it is Still All About Jesus and we are thankful to be able to teach and learn about Him every day here at Trinity-St. John Lutheran School.
